LATEST UPDATE(S): Monday, January 11th, 2011 was a BIG day for teachers. Oral arguments in the Friedrichs vs. CTA et. al. U.S. Supreme Court case officially began in an effort to decide whether or not compulsory union dues infringe on a teacher's freedom of speech. AAE and other leading reformers gathered at a rally at the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court to support Rebecca Friedrichs and the AAE-member plaintiffs standing alongside her in this case.

WALL STREET JOURNAL: "I am one of 10 California teachers suing to end compulsory union dues in Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, which will be heard by the Supreme Court Jan. 11. Our request is simple: Strike down laws in 23 states that require workers who decline to join a union to pay fees anyway. In our view, paying fees to a union should not be a prerequisite for teaching in a public school. No one in the U.S. should be forced to give money to a private organization he or she disagrees with fundamentally. Teachers deserve a choice." READ THE FULL ARTICLE.
